      Connection Speed 8189 kbps 414 kbps
      Line Attenuation 15 db 6 db
      Noise Margin 20 db 21 db

      You would max out your line at 20mb, you have great stats there.

      excellent - I was happy with Mid until they slashed the bandwidth. I know in upgrading ill be doing exactly wht sky want me to do, but still cant argue with 10 a month.

      Just a side note - I have sky talk and currently recieve 5 off my net, will this continue or does it end in January as I have heard?

      wouldn't guarantee 20Mbps...but definitely a good speed...

      just be aware that speed'll drop to 4Mbps to start with before DLM kicks in so don't be surprised and don't bother calling Sky...

      As far as i have read, so long as you have sky talk then you will keep getting the 5 off.
